Our Values

We Value Reaching out to those like and unlike us with Grace

We will share the good news of Jesus Christ locally, nationally and globally.

Luke 19:10 – “For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.”

We Value Passionate Prayer

We will pray personally and corporately, understanding that when we pray something happens in the spiritual realm that impacts things on earth.

Ephesians 6:18 – “Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.”

We Value Being Unashamed of God’s Word

We will teach and uphold the scriptures, valuing God’s revelation of Himself to us through His Word.

2 Timothy 3:16 – “All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realise what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.”

We Value Growing Believers into Disciples

We will equip believers to become more and more like Christ every day. We will encourage spiritual growth and maturity in our children, youth and adults.

Ephesians 4.12 “Our responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ.’

We Value Authentic & Relevant Worship

We will gather to worship our God expecting to meet with Him and to hear from Him.

John 4:24 – “For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.”

We Value Radical Risks of Faith

Trusting that where God leads He will provide, we will step out of the boat and take risks for the sake of the kingdom, even when it may not make worldly sense.

Matthew 14:27-29 – “But Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid,” he said. “Take courage. I am here!” 28Then Peter called to him, “Lord, if it’s really you, tell me to come to you, walking on the water.” 29“Yes, come,” Jesus said. So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus.”

We Value Outrageous Generosity

To have open hands towards God, each other and our community so that we are known for our generosity and what we add to our community.

2 Corinthians 8:2 – “They are being tested by many troubles, and they are very poor. But they are also filled with abundant joy, which has overflowed in rich generosity.”

We Value Standing up for the Disadvantaged

We will actively seek opportunities to speak up for and empower those who cannot speak for themselves and to work for justice.

Matthew 25:40 – “And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’”

We Value Strong Servant Leadership

God calls us as a church to provide strong but humble leadership seeking to serve those in our care.

Matthew 20:28 – “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

We Value Genuine Community

We understand life isn’t meant to be lived in isolation so we will make the effort to know others and be known by them.

Acts 2:42 – “All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper), and to prayer.”

We Value Bringing our best to God in all things

Understanding that all people are created and valued by God, we want to honour Him – giving Him our best and putting energy and effort into all we do.

Colossians 3:23 – “Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.”
